The children were so excited to finally make hamantashen! First we made the dough together and mixed all the ingredients in a big bowl. We measured flour, sugar, baking powder, oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. We mixed it up and put it in the fridge until the next day.
Then we each got a piece. We remembered that the first shape we need to make is a circle, so we flattened our dough into circles. Then each child got to choose what kind of filling they wanted – cherry or chocolate. They put the filling in the middle of the dough and folded up the sides to make a triangle shape. Then they pinched the corners so it would stay. They looked just like Haman’s hat!
We can’t wait to send them home in our Mishloach Manot for Purim next week.
And here are some other pictures from the week. We’ve been having a lot of fun with finger paint, gears, playdough, and trains as well as dress up.
